Have you dreamed of going to live and work in Japan? Do you have an interest in Japanese life, culture, art, society, music or sports? Do you have a functional level of ability with the Japanese language? If so, we may have the perfect job for you in Sendai, Japan with the local Berlitz Language Center.

We are looking for a new teacher to join our organization in Sendai, Japan, a city northeast of Tokyo .

Still, while it is close enough to the excitment of the mega-metropolis of Tokyo for a quick trip any time, traditional culture abounds.

We have teaching positions that need to be filled by honest, energetic staff who are well-mannered, adaptable, and understand that teamwork and kindness are the most effective tools we have in education. We need teachers who love working with both kids and adults, and who are passionate about helping Japanese learners develop strong speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. The curriculum with this orgaization is carefully designed, and Japanese school staff are on duty to help coordinate everything. All we need is you. Speak with us and get all the details you need.


Candidate Qualifications:

  • Bachelor Degree (major in Education or English strongly preffered) 
  • TEFL/TESOL a bonus
  • Experience living and teaching in Asia a bonus

Job Benefits

  • Salary: Starts at 240,000 yen per month
  • Bonus and incentive program
